Coming to you live from the Balboa Bay Club, site of the Birth Choice Gala with founder Kathleen Eaton and their special guest speaker, Focus on the Family president Jim Daly.

400-408 – Kathleen Eaton, founder-CEO of Birth Choice Health Clinics (, 800-631-6254), with locations in Mission Viejo, Placentia, Santa Ana, Long Beach, and, along with their new Mobile Unit that went operational two weeks ago, they just added their fifth location in Orange just last week, and they'll be opening their sixth location in Napa in January.  They've been really busy the last few weeks – there was a fire at their Long Beach facility just two weeks ago, Orange opened last week, and this week is their big gala.

413-423 – What's wrong with California?  Why the rebuke against the Democrats all across the country and not here in California?  Short answer:  California voters haven't hit bottom yet, and they don't connect our problems to the Democrats they keep sending to Sacramento.  They're fooled by the class warfare rhetoric, the playing of the race-card in every election, and they continue to believe the Democrats' narrative that big-government tax and spend solutions will fix our state problems and our national problems  

Blacks and Hispanics keep voting in Democrats who only perpetuate inner-city problems, and the unions spend tens of millions of dollars to elect Democrats who will continue to pad their extravagant pension and benefit packages, with guaranteed cost of living increases, and retirement at age 50 on full salary.

Across the country, Republicans picked up 6 senate seats, 61 House seats, 19 Democrat-controlled legislatures, and 6 key governorships (Michigan, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, New Mexico, and Maine).  And what happened in California?  Only one seat changed in both the Assembly and the State Senate:  a Democrat won another Assembly seat. 

The Democrats now control the 80-seat Assembly D-51 R-29, and the 40-seat Senate D-24 R-14 with 2 Vacancies

Oh, and Jerry Brown is now Governor – which is actually really good news for conservatives, and thereby the state.  The Democrats won't be able to blame Arnold for all our problems any more – they'll control it all – and maybe this time, California voters will wake up.

And, with the voters passing Prop 25, the Republicans won't be able to stop the Democrats in Sacramento anymore from raising taxes, exploding the budget, growing the size of the unions, and growing the size of government.  No longer will the Democrats need 2/3 to pass a budget, now it's just 50%. 

So, if you thought your taxes and fees were high already, and if you thought the government was already too big and too inefficient, and if you thought the unions were already too powerful in the state, just wait.  You ain't seen nothing yet – and Jerry Brown will sign it all.

Get ready for bigger and more inefficient government, more class warfare, more "the Republican suburbs aren't paying their 'fair share' to help the barrios and ghettos" rhetoric, and of course, more taxes on those lucky enough to still have a job in our state where the unemployment rate is going to continue to rise. 

Tragically, the poor need jobs – heck, we all need jobs – but sadly, the Democrats are going to continue to play the class warfare card not to actually create jobs in the private sector, but to create more government jobs, just as Obama's stimulus did, further strengthening their marriage with the unions, and further bankrupting the state.  And it will all be done in the name of "fairness" and "compassion." 

The country will now get to see what happens when liberals run all the branches of government here in California – and, just like everywhere else where they've had a monopoly on power, and we'll all get to see the same pitiful results.  Think Detroit and the inner cities of the Rust Belt of the upper Midwest and the Northeast.

California is going to get a lot worse before it gets any better, now that the voters have spoken.

Hopefully the new 14-member Citizens Redistricting Commission, bolstered by Prop 20, and composed of 5 Democrats, 5 Republicans, and 4 registered with neither party, will be able to draw more competitive districts in California.  On Tuesday, the average victory margin was about 65-35, for both Democrats and Republicans, far too many "safe" districts.

2012 can't come soon enough.

// If we manage to do these things, there is no reason why we can't look forward with confidence to winning in 2012. I have said all along that this election must be seen in conjunction with the next. Ultimately 2010 must be viewed as just the first battle in a much longer fight that leads to November 6, 2012, and beyond. We cannot fully restore and revive America until we replace Obama. The meaning of the 2010 election was rebuke, reject, and repeal. We rebuked Washington's power grab, rejected this unwanted "fundamental transformation of America," and began the process to repeal the dangerous policies inflicted on us. But this theme will only complement the theme of 2012, which is renew, revive, and restore. In 2012, we need to renew our optimistic, pioneering spirit, revive our free-market system, and restore constitutional limits and our standing in the world as the abiding beacon of freedom. //
